USGBC 20.40 Talks: Green Schools
(Attend in-person or remotely)
Join us for three thought-provoking presentations on sustainable green schools in Northeast Florida followed by a robust panel discussion at the LEED Gold Jessie Ball duPont Center on Thursday, March 8, 2018. These quarterly 20.40 Talks offer diverse perspectives on how to create a fully sustainable community by the year 2040.
You will learn specifically about
- an energy audit of multiple buildings and a foam free initiative at Jacksonville University,
- how Duval County Public Schools has saved $100 million since 2005 through energy efficiency measures and education, why its Green Champions Program is so successful, and how they recently earned the coveted U.S. Department of Education's Green Ribbon School District Award, and
- how St. Johns County School District has experienced a cost avoidance of over $43 million dollars in one of the fastest growing school districts in the nation.
